The first hinge slides off when I attempt to pull the cork out. I don't have this problem with my corkscrew. Does this corkscrew work differently than other corkscrews?
Frank on Dec 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is a doubled hinged fulcrum and worm for extra leverage and smoother pulling.To start opening the bottle of wine you start with the ledge area closest to the fulcrum of the cork screw. You use that one to pull it as far out as possible and then use the lowest ledge to finish the job.
where is this made, country?

My knife when it is in an open position it is not secure, as you put pressure on it to cut the foil on the bottle it moves? Is this normal?

BEST ANSWER: Not to my knowledge. It doesn’t lock in place, but it’s tight enough not to move or slip.
Should the lever swing freely or is it supposed to stay closed on its own?

BEST ANSWER: Hello Matt,
The lever should remain closed when not in use.
Thank you

I have Never had an easier time removing a cork from a wine bottle. As a matter of fact, the first time the cork came out so fast I spilled wine. With the next bottle I moved much slower and , bingo it came right out. Yes the price is high, but well worth it!

One of the Best Corkscrews I have ever used
Bought this for my son for Christmas. Had the opportunity to use it a few times and now buying one for myself. It is a well made and well designed corkscrew and makes opening wine very easy. I have opened hundreds of bottles of wine and tried many types of cork screws. This is a great tool and beautiful to look at as well

Best cork screw
I have used this one often and I am impressed with the double hinge system, the knife, and the worm! This cork screw has some weight to it. Excellent product!!

Poorly designed
Very strange. Obviously a quality product in terms of materials and construction but it's like whoever designed it never actually tried to use it.

The first thing that hits you is that it's HUGE. At least twice as big as a regular corkscrew. At first I thought this would be a good thing as I have large hands but it makes it very unwieldy to operate, especially with one hand. When open, it's about 8" long and it's difficult to keep it level and centered when screwing it in.

The second issue that I had with it is that the knife is on some kind of hinge spring. Again, at first I thought "well, this is a high-end corkscrew, so maybe this is an upgrade" but it's just weird and dangerous to have the knife give a half inch when you are trying to cut the foil.

The third and last straw is that the first hinge slips off the bottle when you try to pull the cork. At first I thought it was because with the first two bottles that I uncorked, the corkscrew ended up off-center (see comment above relating to unwieldiness) but that was not the case. It's like the edge is slanted upward, so that you don't really get a solid purchase on the edge of the bottle.

One more minor complaint is that the screw itself is not teflon-coated. No biggie but for $70...

As I said above, this is a well-made tool; feels good in your hand, no sharp edges, quality materials, attractive. It just doesn't work very well.

Easy to use, a professional's pick
This was a gift for our daughter who is in the industry. She works at WIlliam Cole, an exclusive winery in St. Helena, Napa Valley. She finds this corkscrew to be attractive and sturdy while feeling good in her hand. It is well made, heavy and shaped to perform. Since she must open bottles with ease for her daily employment, she is delighted to have a tool she can rely on while at the winery, on the road or at home.

Nicest wine opener we have used
This is a very sturdy wine opener and it is quite a bit larger than the typical ones you find. It operates beautifully! Nice gift for the wine lover that knows how to properly open a bottle of wine.

good looks, good grip
On some bottles of wine, the indent kept slipping off the lip on the bottle.

Beautiful, but functional?
This is a quality work of art. However, I've been opening wine bottles with waiters' corkscrews for 40 years, and they all--even the $10 ones-- worked better than this one. The bottle lip simply won't hold the tool, which slips off the lip regularly. A slight notch on the tool would solve the problem, but sadly, it isn't there.
